Sanctus Reach does offer a handful of decent moments. I chuckled when I reduced a squadron of Orks to bloody puddles, and again when I managed what at first seemed an impossible incursion. But these flashes of satisfaction aren't enough to hold up a game that’s mediocre at best and vexing at worst. Together with a host of minor annoyances, they add up to a long, dull stint with a bad game from a great franchise that deserves far better treatment.
There is still polish to be done by the devs before it's this is a refined experience, but a lot of the issues can be overlooked once you get an hour or two into the core game and you are working out how to hold a line against the waves of greenskin. Much of the central gameplay is there, and there are loads of great ideas and units to extend tactical range.
In the end, Horrors of the Warp is a good addition to a good niche title. Like most DLC in this type of games, the main factor governing your purchase should be how much you like the faction in the spotlight; if you like Chaos stuff and have a very good time with Sanctus Reach, then Horrors of the Warp just might be for you.
